Summary: Headsets don't last. They have a defect where the volume continues to drop. Razer customer service is also awful and don't help at all. They swapped my headsets with refurbished ones, the wireless tower came in damaged, and the headsets after 3 weeks, continues to have the volume problem.
Summary: Alright, so even after reading the reviews (about half 1 star to half 5 star,) I decided that I would try my luck with ordering this headset. Bad decision. First off, the audio quality is fantastic, but that's not the purpose of this device. It's designed as an xbox headset and does not perform well. Unless the game allows you to turn down the game volume within game (like BF3), then the game will always drown out the chat volume, which sucks.
Summary: The Chimaera 5.1 was purchased to enjoy 5.1 sound and not bothering anyone in the vicinity (wife :)). While it worked I enjoyed the sound and construction, I usually got 4-5 hours on a full charge, communicating with friends also worked fine - crisp and controllable. However, lately (~10 months after purchase) for some reason it started to turn the volume down till it gets mute by itself which makes it impossible to use if you are not willing to push volume up button...
Summary: The sound from this headset is no more better then the turtle beach x11's i've had for a year now, better base but that's where the story ends. Last time i waste money on a razer product!
Pros: It looks great....
Cons: 3.5mm audio is distorted when listening to music vocals are some how lowered to a whisper while the instruments are turned WAY up... When playing MW3 on my xbox the sound gets cranked up so loud i feel like my head is going to explode and when i turn it back down to a reasonable level 2 seconds later right back up

Summary: Ich habe das Headset am PC benutzt. Funktionert erstmal gut dachte ich. PC erkennt alles und der Sound ist echt super. Doch dann begannen die Probleme. Im TS angekommen fiel es sofort auf. Der Sprachausgabe des Headsets ist grottig. Total leise und schlecht. Habe nach Lösungen gesucht. Gibt wohl keine. Habe wohl alle das Problem. und jetzt nach ca 1 Jahr wurde es immer leiser und jetzt geht es gar nicht mehr. Der PC erkennt es einfach nicht mehr.
